In the emerging Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), authentication problems have become an urgent issue for massive resource-constrained devices because traditional costly security mechanisms are not suitable for them. The security protocol designed for resource-constrained systems should not only be secure but also efficient in terms of usage of energy, storage, and processing. Although recently many lightweight schemes have been proposed, to the best of our knowledge, they are unable to address the problem of privacy preservation with the resistance of Denial of Service (DoS) attacks in a practical way. In this paper, we propose a lightweight authentication protocol based on the Physically Unclonable Function (PUF) to overcome the limitations of existing schemes. The protocol provides an ingenious authentication and synchronization mechanism to solve the contradictions amount forward secrecy, DoS attacks, and resource-constrained. The performance analysis and comparison show that the proposed scheme can better improve the authentication security and efficiency for resource-constrained systems in IIoT.
